Well this of course is amazingly cool, if the guy thinks he can
develop something that will cheaply scale to a billion songs.
Especially if it sounds like it won't be patent-encumbered. Call me
skeptical, but I'll believe it when I see it.
That said, I had put together 12GHz of CPUs to analyze fdmf, and I
can keep them around to analyze any new algorithms that might pop up.
Just send me the code.
